St Albans, a photo essay #travelthursday

Having driven Mr Kiwi crazy with wanderlust we decided one morning to hop on a train and finally visit St Albans, an outer-London destination we have been meaning to explore for years.
 
 
 
 
 
 



 


 
 
With a grand cathedral, roman ruins, quirky pubs, insanely grand coffee shops, leering gargoyles, a medieval clock tower and English Heritage listed train signal box, St Albans is a perfect afternoon wander.

  2. These are so beautiful! Good call on making them B&W - they look very antique-y that way. {Is that a word?}

  3. Love quirky old places like this. That second photo is lovely - I think it can be difficult to gain a sense of the enormity of buildings like that, but you did it!

  7. It was such a sweet, crumbly town! Full of old curious. And yes, antique-y is definitely a word!

  9. Even though it was grey and dreary we loved our little escape. Black & White photos can seem so atmospheric sometimes...
